I really liked the colors of Dawn's Raspberry Suite Color Challenge this week so I decided to use my other new Papertrey set, Everyday Button Bits to make a second card for the challenge. I love, love, love this set. I have all of Papertrey's buttons and use them all the time so this is the perfect set for me. Plus, I've never seen anything like it. Nichole Heady is a genius!
I started with a Vintage Cream card base and covered it with a sheet of Bitty Box Basics patterned paper. I used my Nestabilities to cut out a rectangle from Vintage Cream and scalloped rectangle from Spring Moss cardstock.
I made the grass from stamping one of the trees in Father Knows Best onto Spring Moss cardstock. I just hand cut the cardstock into grass. I didn't think it would turn out but it doesn't look too bad. I stamped the balloons and sentiment from Everyday Button Bits. I picked a few buttons and threaded them with DMC floss and adhered them. The scalloped rectangle is popped up with 3D foam squares. Some Scarlet Jewel grosgrain ribbon was added at the bottom and that's it! I'm not even going to tell you how long it took me to tie that knot so that it looked okay. I'm just so ribbon tying challenged!!!
